Measurement of FSH serum is the best laboratory test to enforce the diagnosis of menopause, but the cost is still relatively expensive. Menopause plays a role of lowering estrogen levels. A deficiency of estrogen will cause a cessation of growth of the most the vaginal epithelial cells. Estrogen plays a role in estrogen receptive cells to stimulate proliferation and maturation. The decreasing of estrogen production will cause the atrophy of the tissue so that will provide a wide range of symptoms, including on the vaginal wall. On the vaginal epithelial found cyclic hormonal changes. Proliferation and change the proportions of the various types of cells or maturation phase also occurs in the epithelial. Estrogen deficiency could made decreasing of proliferation of the vaginal ephitelial sprawl and it’s maturation process to become an intermediate and superficial cell which is rich of glycogen. Maturation Index (Ml) is a cheap tool to evaluate a hormone that affects women. Ml qualitatively measuring the response to estrogen. The description of the woman found in the cytology postmenopausal atrophy and shown by MI with increasing of parabasal cell number.
